Hood River County fire
Plume of smoke rises from trees off above Pine Grove in Hood River County Thursday. The fire, the first this season in Hood River County, in a pine and oak stand just down an embankment from a residence, was reported by a neighbor at about 11 a.m., in the Oak Ridge development along Old Dalles Highway,. Wy’east Fire District, Oregon Department of Forestry and National Scenic Area firefighters responded, and had the fire contained within about 20 minutes, to an area about 100-by-30 feet. The home, about 1.5 miles east of Eastside Road, is located within the National Scenic Area. No one was home at the time, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, according to Wy’east chief Greg Borton.
